Every season, new cookie cutters make their appearance in craft and discount stores. Pictures are posted on Facebook or Instagram by the lucky cookiers who first spied them. A mad rush to the stores ensues, followed by the updated pictures and statuses of "I found them!" and "I bought extras-who needs them!". And those of us who are unable to score the highly sought-after shapes are left to cry in our cookie dough with dreams of what-ifs.
And then comes along a Cookie Fairy Godmother.
I was completely surprised by one such Cookie Fairy Godmother, who spontaneously gifted me with cutters that were on my wish list! Top of the list included the Wilton turkey and turkey leg cutter set.
Thanksgiving is in the VERY near future! Do you have your guest list finalized? I have never hosted Thanksgiving. My hubby, kids, and I alternate between my parent's house and my in-law's house from year to year. This year, we'll be at my in-law's, and my contributions include Maryland Crab Dip, cookies (of course), and pumpkin fluff dip (a new addition to my recipe binder!).
I sometimes wonder about those individuals who are in charge of organizing the big meal- and how stressful it would be! What if there were unexpected guests? Like Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving when half the neighborhood kids show up to Grandmother's house for turkey? We're out of mashed potatoes! There's not enough plates! SOMEONE ATE THE LAST COOKIE! It's enough to give me nightmares.
However, I wouldn't mind THESE extra guests to my dinner table!
This pair o' pilgrims is sweet and simple- and you still have enough time to make them for YOUR unexpected guests to enjoy!
I'm Amy. Wife, Mom, former science teacher- and now full time cookie baker on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Pull up a chair and we'll create! I'll bring the coffee- maybe Mike (The Cookie Widower) will make it for us.
